The West Virginia Environmental Training Center was established in 1983 under the administration of the West Virginia Department of Education. Federal grant funds were obtained from the United States Environmental Protection Agency to construct and equip the facility for the purpose of providing training to wastewater and water plant operators. Continued operation is overseen by the Department of Education through the Regional Education Service Agency

The West Virginia Environmental Training Center provides training and technical assistance to wastewater and water professionals statewide.  Operators, managers, inspectors, and technicians attend both certification courses and continuing education workshops offered throughout the year.  About 75 programs per year are delivered to approximately 1,200 participants.  Water and wastewater operator certification courses are offered at many levels, usually twice a year.

A wide range of continuing education workshops and seminars are delivered each year which range in length from one to four days.  These include process control, troubleshooting, maintenance, regulations, and management topics.  Seminars of this kind are offered once or twice a year depending on demand.

 

In an effort to make it easier for operators and administrators to find training in a one-stop location, simply browse our calendar or click on the bookmarked hyperlinks. We have attempted to provide links to other pertinent training opportunities through other agencies; however, WVRWA cannot be held responsible for changes to other agencies training sessions.
